Investment choices from more than 135 global markets

Evaluating the relative merits of stocks traded in different currencies can be challenging for investors. That is why Interactive Brokers created GlobalAnalyst.

The tool allows search for stocks by region, country, industry, market capitalization, and currency as to identify undervalued stocks worldwide.

Investors can then use a number of financial metrics, such as the P/E/G Ratio, to assess whether the potential of a value stock.

The ratio is PE divided by three-year compound earnings growth rate. PEGs below 1.0 suggest a company is undervalued, while a PEG above 1.0 suggests a company that is overvalued.
